We live in extraordinary times. Nothing like this has ever disrupted how our society functions so completely before. We are isolated, stressed and distracted and living in fear of catching a disease that could kill us. I am grateful that we have the tools to stay connected with each other as individuals and as communities despite the lack of hugs.
For us as educators, those tools are both great news and additional stressors. It’s fantastic that we have the ability to connect with our students in various ways but that also means that we have to connect with them in ways many of us have never explored or wanted to explore before.
This webinar series begins with the smallest of steps away from the lectures you are used to delivering, reflects on the technology available to you and examines how we can use the tools to teach effectively remotely. After that, we build on individual teaching instances and look at the bigger picture of how to create a very simple course in time for the next academic year, how to use self-access materials to support your time online live with your students. We finish with managing communities and managing your time so you don’t end up overworking and burning out.
